This book appears to have been a publisher's venture, and consists of a series of 18 "remainder" plates by Eleazar Albin, Elizabeth Albin, and Fortin Albin, to which text has been written at some period posterior to 1774 (as evidenced by citation of the "Gizzard Trout" on p.30), and consequently not by Eleazar Albin ; plus a reprint of North's "Discourse"
